As I wrote about yesterday, American Express is running all sorts of coupons//savings with Twitter. Most require that you spend a certain amount and then you get a credit applied automatically to your Amex statement.

However, one of the newest is $10 off a $10 purchase at Best Buy. So basically, you can get $10 in free stuff, which is pretty sweet for spending a minute to sign up and 5 seconds to Tweet. Not bad since it’s free to sign up and they confirm your registration via Tweet with a link to the T&C. Seems pretty straight forward.

Quantities are limited so to get in on this deal:

1) Sync your Amex card and Twitter account here. (If you need one, you can create a Twitter account here)
2) Then send a Tweet with #AmexBestBuy10

My tweet

3) They will confirm in a Tweet back with a link to the T&C

Promo confirmation Tweet-back

Full Terms & Conditions

4) Make sure you follow me @Thepointsguy! (Okay, that may not be necessary for this promo, but you should anyway!)

Hat tip TPG Twitter follower @Bitachu!

  • Ht

    Can you use a citi AA Amex?

  • Robb_yee

    is this only for american cards?

  • Guest

    this site turning into fatwallet or slickdeals?

    what does this have to do with travel?

  • thepointsguy

    Most savvy travelers have Amex cards and there are plenty of travel related items for sale at best buy!

  • Guest

    It’s free stuff…does it really matter?

    If you want a travel deal use the AMEX Virgin Atlantic deal, or if you’re in Austin (for SXSW) use the Austin10 deal.

  • SKy

    I got confirmation for my tweet but I did my wife’s and brother’s card and no confirmation!
    Is it one per address?

  • Evan

    Yes, just used mine and got confirmation.

  • PJ

    oops it looks like unless you get on tweeter facebook or foursquares you dont get in this promotion

  • Hevelhavolim

    Are they going to send me an inflated 1099?

    Will I end up paying $400 in tax because of this?

    This seems to be the trend lately…

  • Windycityf

    Looks like it’s been changed to $10 off $100 purchase.

  • crazypalooza

    just signed up for twitter and linked to amex. tweeted #AmexBestBuy10 but no response with any offer. am i doing something wrong? Any twitter experts here to help a twitter newbie?

  • AKold

    This fits with AmEx trying to make Membership Rewards the “Social Currency.”

    I like their entry into social media. Makes being a twitter & foursquare addict worth it. I’ve already saved at least $200 with 4sq over the past year, and now saving $ with twitter!

  • Ron

    I got the same, $10 of $100 purchase.

  • PK

    I only have pre-paid amex card..Does prepaid card works for these offers?

  • Vincent

    Best Buy periodically runs deals selling iTunes cards for 20% off. This promotion would bump a $100 card down to $70, a good deal. Unfortunately at this moment Best Buy is not running that deal.

  • Vincent

    Oh, thought to mention there are actually TWO promotions in play here:
    #AMEXBESTBUY10 good for $10 off purchase $10 or more, until 3/31
    #AMEXBESTBUY good for $10 off purchase of $100 or more until 4/30
    That may clear up confusion of one previous poster about a $100 spend requirement.

  • Ilimas

    Thanks for the tip!

  • Milezjunkie

    This deal is dead.

  • Ryan

    sorry, max # of Cardmembers have enrolled in #AmexBestBuy10 offer. Visit for more offers

  • Christel

    Looks like the #AmexBestBuy10 offer is maxed out. However, it seems I was automatically enrolled in the #AmexBestBuy $10 off $100 offer, but I probably won’t redeem that one.
